Most of us think that a warthog is a warthog and a zebra is a zebra. Nothing could be further from the truth. Almost all the African game species are represented by a number of subspecies.
Stephan J. Carton-Barber’s book, African Game Species and Subspecies is a wonderful work, highlighting the large number of subspecies of African game animals. Some 20 years or so ago Stephan was looking for a book on African subspecies but could not find one because such a book did not exist at the time. Being a game farmer and thoroughly interested in all game animals and the ways of the wild, he decided to solve that problem. The result is this beautiful book of almost 470 pages in which the different animal species are richly described and illustrated with magnificent full-colour pictures.
This is truly one of the most informative books on African wildlife. It has 63 chapters. Chapters one to three cover the introduction, taxonomy and the distribution of game. In chapters four to 63 the animals are discussed, with some chapters covering more than one species.
Stephan dedicated this book to his late son Devlin who was murdered at age 27.
SA JAGTER/HUNTER highly recommends this wonderful book. It is a must have for all those who love and admire African game animals. * African Game, Species and Subspecies is available from most leading bookshops and sell for R1 295. Or you can order a copy by writing to email@example.com
